Alleged bad Appler should pay back $1m

Industrial espionage claims for iPhone man

Security for virtualized datacentres

The Apple supply manager accused of taking bribes in exchange for approving suppliers for iPhone and iPod headphone parts should pay back the $1m he is alleged to have pocketed for dodgy dealing.

This is according to the prosecution, which asked the court to seize $950,000 from Paul Devine. Apple lawyers even want to take away his Porsche Cayenne, according to documents seen by Bloomberg.

The court was told prosecutors needed more time to study Devine's computers. He is currently out on $1m bail. Devine earned over $100,000 a year plus options while at Apple. Prosecutors alleged that US Federal agents had found more than $150,000 in cash stashed away in shoe boxes when Devine's home was searched.

Devine is facing Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organisations (RICO) charges. He is also facing civil charges from Apple.

Devine is accused of taking $2.5m from six suppliers either in exchange for promises of preferential treatment or in exchange for confidential information to help them win contracts.

At least one firm has denied any wrongdoing but said it paid Devine as part of a normal consultancy contract. Devine denies all charges. ®
